£700 for a television ?

"THE FACT THAT AN OPINION HAS BEEN WIDELY HELD IS NO EVIDENCE WHATEVER THAT IT IS NOT UTTERLY ABSURD." Bertrand Russell Philosopher and Mathematician. I sat at the bar next to Andy one of my oldest friends , I had played a blinder I thought sitting with my slip that had 14/1 scribbled onto it , the slip was now trading at 7/1 according to the female and Big Mac , although with no access to a computer I had to let him run. Something dawned on me that day that has stayed with my ever since, I mean I had often read racing books written by the pros on the importance of being different and going against the crowd, yet on this day it seemed just the importance of common sense, I was looking at the market in a completely different..
Stoke City v WEST HAM UNITED-45/1 Scorecast.
by redhammer on 29 Oct at 18:31
Stoke City v West Ham United 1-11-2014. 15.00. The Brittania. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out West Ham 2-1 Man City The Game Last years champions came to the Boleyn and both sides were in a confident mood, City had played in the champions league, blowing a 2-0 lead in Russia while West Ham had won their last 2 on the trot. Allardyce named an unchanged side and it was his side who were on the backfoot from the off for the first 20 minutes as City created few half chanes with Aguero looking off the boil. A free kick inside the City half saw a long ball into the City box, nodded on by Reid and Valencia took contorl only to smash it against Joe Harts chest, leaving him flat our for a few minutes. Man of the match Song was controlling the..
Charlie Hall Chase Trends (updated 29/10)
by Micko70 on 28 Oct at 20:03
For me the winter jumps season starts when the Charlie Hall meeting at Wetherby gets under way, the race is a Grade 2 race and has been won by some good horses in the past. The race takes place on Saturday November 1st and OLBG also sponsor a mares hurdle race on the same card. I am using a new scoring system for trends races now, any horse passing a trend with a 9 or a 10 will get 3 points, any horse passing a trend with 7 or 8 will get 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 5 or 6 will get 1 point. I am looking at 8 trends for this race, they are, Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins & Grade Win There are 11 horses declared for the race..
PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles.

PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles. At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. Apologies for the formatting, that is best described as "work in progress". BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles. However, a few things did come as a surprise. The first, and this can only be a statistical blip or coincidence, was that in all seven matches on the first day of the season the away team scored the first..
NFL EXPERTS PICKS - Week 9 NFL Picks!
by Chipmonkadidooda on 30 Oct at 22:31
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 9 I'm afraid it's a quick up and out this week. Let's call it a no huddle offence in terms of the blog this week. Precious little time and plenty to do sadly. Time is of the essence and I have no time to give a good deconstruction of last week, suffice to say the experts maintained the good performances and were a whisker away from back to back accumulator victories. Yes those darn Cowboys let us down, but the savvy amongst you would have traded out before the Monday night game for guaranteed winnings. Without further ado then onto the picks for this week. Back to speed next weekend! Enjoy your NFL weekend! Thursday Night Game NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (3-4) @ CAROLINA PANTHERS (3-4-1) CURRENT MONEYLINE ODDS: 1.58/2.50 (HANDICAP -3 SAINTS) CONSENSUS: 5-2 PANTHERS CHIPMONKADIDOODA: Saints outscoring opponents by more than..
Gameweek 10 - Newcastle vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 31 Oct at 05:35
The November schedule opens with 3 key matches over an eight day period. Liverpool first travel to Newcastle and Madrid and then host league leaders Chelsea. Eight days of hell? Or possibly eight days of redemption? All be it being the League Cup, the midweek reaction against Swansea was somewhat encouraging, as was Balotelli’s much awaited goal. The Reds make the trip up to the north east on the back of a 4-match unbeaten run in the league. This notwithstanding there is still a general lack of confidence around the club. This run did not comprise any of the top 4 teams, the Reds only won 1 of 3 home matches and the 2 wins which came against the modest West Brom and QPR were too much of a close call to consider satisfactory. On the other hand the Magpies appear..
Trainers to follow in November
by Scratville on 29 Oct at 22:48
October was a fantastic month, currently above £90.00 LSP, that almost assures us another £100+ LSP year. We managed a tiny profit last November, hopefully we can improve on that this year. Plenty to go at this month and although it looks like a lot of trainers I think the number of runners will be less than last month as most of the trainers runners will be limited to a certain type eg (Chasers on the NH). NH ALAN KING (CHASERS) High profile trainer but I think it's the first time he's appeared on the blog. King has a decent record in general in November but his Chasers have a much better record. 2010 4/22 18% +£ 8.50 2011 9/36 25% ..
